Big Tygart Cemetery is located along Rte. #21 as you drive south
about 2 miles out of Mineral Wells, WV.
This is a community cemetery with public access. It is associated
with both the Big Tygart Baptist Church and the Big Tygart United
Methodist Church. Many of the burials were members of these two
churches. Donations can be made to either Church to help with
the cost of maintaining the cemetery.
This cemetery is still active and well maintained. The upper
right section contains some of the oldest graves. Many of the
stones in this section are very worn and difficult to impossible
to read. Complete accuracy of this transcription cannot be guaranteed.
Please verify the dates with other sources. In addition to the
transcription, there are 64 graves that were either unmarked or
marked only with rocks and concrete blocks, or the stones were
worn to the point that they were no longer legible.
This transcription was done on May 23, 2002 from a physical
examination of the stones present, when I visited the cemetery.
